Hear My Cry


Hear My Cry


CATALOGUE TEXT
In 1968 the accountant Ryszard Siwiec publicly burned himself to death at the Warsaw stadium in protest against the Soviet invasion of Prague. But nobody was interested at the time. In 1991 Marciej Drygas uses archive material and interviews to reconstruct the incident, the political circumstances and the psychology of the masses.
